Continuing with my posts about parasitic plants, this is Indian Pipes, Monotropa uniflora. It is a holoparasite, because it has no chlorophyll. It leeches nutrients off of mycorrhizal fungi, which are fungi that have symbiotic relationships with trees. It grows in temperate areas of Asia, North America and South America. It is rare, and hard to cultivate because of the specific growth conditions it requires. [x]
